Heavy duty rot resistant and waterproof cotton canvas fabric with a fire retardant finish. Recommended for heavy purpose applications requiring a fire retardant finish, such as tarpaulins, truck covers, and marquees.
Cotton canvas fabric is naturally breathable - its ability to regulate temperature and moisture make it unique. Cotton canvas is often used to make canopies, marquees, and camping tents due to its breathable nature - a cotton canvas marquee or camping tent will keep cool on hot days and warm during cold nights. Cotton canvas fabric's ability to manage condensation is superior to most modern, manmade fabrics.
Please note, canvas can shrink by up to 3% due to weathering. Please make allwances.
This product has a dry chemical finish (standard finish for outdoor canvas fabrics), colour is built into the finishing chemical together with any flame retardant, rot and waterproof finishes and then is applied to the canvas fabric. The dry chemical finish is impregnated into the fabric.
This is not a VAT dyed product therefore there maybe some intial leaching of colour (apart from white).
Canvas Care Guidelines
Before using a canvas tarpaulin, tent or marquee for the first time, the canvas will need to be pre-conditioned or 'weathered' in order for the structure to have its own natural water repellence.
Pre-soak with a garden hose or similar; avoid high pressure washers as these may remove surface proofing. The fabric needs to completely soak in order to allow the fibres to swell and relax/shrink back to tighten the weave on drying. This wetting/drying process will not only allow the canvas to condition and gain its full water proofing properties, but will also help close up the stitching holes.
The process of weathering may take more than one attempt. From industry feedback and experience, usually two attempts will suffice. The determining factors are the amount of water allowed to fully soak into the canvas and the speed of the drying process from the sun. Proofed canvas fibres expand very slowly.
Allow any mud or dirt to dry. Gently brush off with a soft, lint free, fabric pad. The fabric should be cleaned with a damp sponge using pure cold water. No detergents or power washers should be used as this will remove the rot resistant and waterproof finish. Regular reproofing is recommended.
Fabrics should never be packed and stored damp. The fabric must be completely aired dry. All natural fibres are susceptible to mildew. For mildew to grow it requires heat and moisture. Mildew will result quickly on canvas if folded away wet or stored in a damp place. If the fabric is being stored for any length of time, this should be in a dry, well ventilated area.
